If its sprained, that's worse than broken IMO. Plenty of rest was the remedy for me when I had mine twisted up. Not sure about the supps though.

It depends what exactly the injury, but Super Cissus RX is king for joint pain and aches imo. I went from not being able to put on my jacket my shoulder was in so much pain to 3 days later lifting shoulders with maximum effort, and it being offered at 16.99 for bulk, simply cannot beat that.

whatever you do or take just make sure that if it is sprained bad you build the strenght back up properly, you do not want it to be a recurring problem

Remember this acronym, for all muscle/skeletal injuries.
Stay off of it, let it rest and heal
Put ice on it, I usually do 10 min on and 10 min off, but def not more than 20 min on or if it gets "numb"
Compression, use an ace wrap etc, but keep it unwrapped at night when you sleep.
Elevation..will help bring the swelling down.
On top of all that you can use NSAIDS like motrin, tylenol, etc. I do not have any experiance with cissus, but many like it.

Stay away from tylenol as it doesnt actually reduce inflammation, just lowers fever and reduces pain, and your injury has a whole mess of inflammatory processes going on right now. Go with ibuprofen.

ice at least 3x per day, 20 minutes each time
elevation for at least 2 hrs. per day
Osteo Sport 12 capsules per day
Bio Mend 9 capsules per day
Fish Oil 9 capsules per day
Tylenol 4 per day- it is good for inflammation, at least for me, or Ibuprofen.....
toe circles (both directions)- gonna hurt like a bitch at first....
rubber band exercises
